By: Dr. LaKeischa W. McMillan

Description: What would you do if you found yourself and your children living out of rented cars? What if you even went from motel to motel looking for one that had a free breakfast so the kids could get a meal before they went to school in the mornings? What if a "friend" offered you a place to stay but it was a con-dim property where black mold was present and you began to have pulmonary issues because you stayed there? Well these are just a few of the daily life challenges Caron LeNoir faced upon reintegrating into civilian life after dual service in the U.S. Army and the U.S. Navy. Sit down with us in the House Call Community as Caron takes us on a journey that is so often not talked about; homeless women veterans. Once you listen to this conversation we challenge you to see how you can make a difference by partnering with Women Veterans Interactive or Rebuild[h]er.
